- Contains higher levels of EPA and DHA than leading brands (one serving of 2 OmegaGuard provides 667 mg omega-3, 363 mg EPA, 240 mg DHA and 64 mg of five other naturally fatty acids and total fish oil of 1200 mg.
- Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may also reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Research also shows that high levels of moega-3 fatty acids promote cardiovascular health and help retain normal blood pressure and triglyceride levels. Omega-3s also support joint function, healthy brain and vision.*
Over 4,500 research studies on omega-3 fatty acids' effects on overall health have been conducted in the last 25 years.
The average American intake of EPA and DHA is only 0.1 to 0,2 g/day, even though the American Heart Association recommends at least two fish meals per week to provide an intake of about 0.3 to 0.5 g/day of EPA and DHA.
Most American diets provide more than ten times as much omega-6 than omega-3 fatty acids, even though there is general scientific agreement that individuals should consume more omega-3 and less omega-6 fatty acids to promote good health.
Research shows that increased levels of omega-3 fatty acids promote cardiovascular health and help retain normal blood pressure and triglyceride levels.*
